Why use coconut in face masks?
Coconut oil for collagen and cell regeneration:
Coconut oil is loaded with benefits for your skin. It is rich in vitamin C which is a natural anti-oxidant, meaning it scavenges free radicals that prematurely age skin. It is also a vitamin that has regenerative properties, helps stimulate collagen production. It also helps with circulation so is great for healing and assisting blood flow around your skin giving you a healthy glow.
Coconut oil face protection:
This oil has a natural sun protection factor of around 4 and has been used in tropical climates for thousands of years.
Coconut oil for acne:
Coconut oil face moisturizers and serums: the fatty acids in this oil help to lock in moisture while helping deliver hydration and nutrients from other ingredients you may choose to combine it with deep into your skins layers.
Extra virgin coconut oil mask, serum and face wash recipes:
Coconut oil cleansing mask (with optional acne wash ingredients)
1 teaspoon lemon juice, aloe vera juice or apple cider vinegar (omit if you have very dry skin)
2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon yogurt
For acne affected skin add a few drops of tea tree oil, lavender oil or a pinch of turmeric (can add all three)
Blend these ingredients together well and apply to skin in a circular motion. Leave on for ten minutes then wash off with water. This face wash will leave your skin feeling soft and clean.
Coconut Oil Chocolate Coffee Mask:
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon coconut cream or coconut oil
4 drops of avocado oil or olive oil
1/2 a mashed carrot, sweet potato or a teaspoon of carrot juice (better still add 5 drops of carrot seed oil)
Blend ingredients together well and apply to skin. Leave on for ten to 20 minutes and wash off with warm water. This is very hydrating natural recipe.
Coffee Coconut Chocolate Antioxidant Mask
1 small chocolate bar
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon strong filtered coffee (espresso)
1 teaspoon molasses if you want a glycolic peel effect with this mask
Melt these ingredients together and apply while warm to your skin. Leave on for ten minutes and wash off. This is rich in antioxidants and stimulates cell repair and regeneration.
